About the Author

Michael M. Sheehan was Senior Fellow of the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies, Toronto. James K. Farge is a senior fellow and librarian at the Pontifical Institute of Medieval Studies at the University of Toronto.


"Marriage, Family and Law in Medieval Europe is a comprehensive yet balanced collection of articles from Sheehan's scholarly career. Sheehan's original and meticulous work on a variety of legal sources laid the groundwork for much subsequent scholarship. Anyone interested in the development of the theory and practice of Christian marriage, the institutional frameworks for medieval women's lives, or seeking to understand English wills as legal products will find this collection of essays a valuable introduction to further research.' -- Stephanie Tarbin, Australian National University Parergon 'This volume of selected studies makes available in accessible form and chronological order several of Sheehan's seminal ideas and much of the substantial documentation gathered by him.' -- Robert Ombres Heythrop Journal 'It was a very happy inspiration which has led to the publication of this memorial volume of sixteen of his best known articles ... Some of those reprinted here have long been compulsory reading for all students of medieval society, and of the borderlines of social and legal history.' -- C.N.L. Brooke Ecclesiastical Law Journal
